Plumber from Downham Market donates his long locks to Little Princess Trust





A Downham plumber had a whopping 25 inches of his hair chopped off to help children who have lost theirs.

Simon Johnson decided to donate his long locks to the Little Princess Trust, a charity which provides free wigs to children and young people who have lost their hair through cancer treatment or other conditions.

As well as donating his hair, which can be made into a wig, Simon has been fundraising for the charity.

“I’ve been raising money for the last eight weeks and got some more coming in. Wigs cost around £700 to make each so I’ve probably raised enough to make two,” Simon said.

Simon was thinking about chopping off some of his hair before going on holiday, but decided to take the trim to the next level by cutting off around 25 inches of his hair.

He has raised more than £1,700 so far via a Facebook page.
